Blake Lively doesn’t want to be #goals for other moms out there. The actress had to get in shape and slim down for her physically challenging role in The Shallows, in which she wears a bikini most of the film just eight months after welcoming daughter, James.
In a recent interview with Australian morning show Sunrise, Lively, who is now pregnant with her and Ryan Reynolds’ second child, opened up about the pressures moms face to lose weight on a regular basis and why she thinks it’s bogus.
“It’s so unfair though because [post-baby weight loss is] so celebrated,” she said. “And I think a woman’s body after having a baby is pretty amazing. You don’t need to be Victoria’s Secret-ready right away because you just did the most incredible miracle that life has to offer. You gave birth to a human being! I’d really like to see that celebrated.”
She’s not the only celeb mom to speak out about the unfair standards for women to lose their pregnancy pounds. Earlier this week, Anne Hathaway posted an inspirational Instagram message featuring her new jean shorts.
“There is no shame in gaining weight during pregnancy (or ever),” she wrote in the post. “There is no shame if it takes longer than you think it will to lose the weight (if you want to lose it at all).”
